Atari Lynx Game Console System for Sale

Atari Lynx Console SystemIn late 1989, the Atari Corporation released their 8-bit handheld game console, the Atari Lynx, selling for an initial retail price of $179.95 in the United States. This portable system distinguished itself from its monochromatic hand-held competitor the Nintendo's Gameboy by being the first portable console to feature a color LCD screen with a backlit display. Despite its innovation, Atari Lynx was unable to beat the popularity of the Gameboy, failing to attract quality third party game developers.  If you want to own your own Lynx system, there are sellers online selling mint Lynx game systems and game cartridges, which are listed for sale below.

redesigned atari lynx consoleAtari tried to boost its moderate sales of the Lynx in 1991 by redesigning the console with improved hardware, smaller compact size, and sleeker look as well as a stereo headphone jack, rubber hand grips, and clearer backlit screen. Atari found more competition in the that same year from Sega which released their smaller portable color console Game Gear. Due to Sega's larger library of game titles, the Game Gear stole the spotlight as the second best selling portable game system, placing the Lynx in a distant third. In 1994, Atari concentrated on its 64-bit home console system the Jaguar, abandoning the Lynx. Despite the lack of success, the Lynx still have fans today within the gaming community who still play and collect games for this system.
